XR520 Receipt Printer

The POS-X XR520 has reached end of life. It has been replaced by the POS-X EVO HiSpeed.

The POS-X XR520 receipt printer offers a stellar combination of extreme performance and affordability and is an ideal solution for retail and hospitality locations. A lightning-fast 11.81" per second print speed keeps lines flowing smoothly, all but eliminating the wait for printouts to finish. The printer supports ESC/POS, OPOS, Windows XP, 2000, Vista, or 7, allowing for easy installation at a wide variety of setups.

The autocutter boasts a 1.5 million cut lifespan, and the printhead is rated at 99.42 miles printed, fantastic longevity for any business. POS-X's standard 5-year warranty also includes 2-day advanced exchange service, giving you much faster turnaround than standard printer warranties. Extended warranties with overnight replacement are also available if downtime must be avoided at all costs. The combination of affordable price and excellent service makes the POS-X XR520 a great receipt printer for virtually any retailer.

POSGuys Rating:

POS-X continues to improve on their thermal printer line with the XR520. Faster and more durable than the XR510, this printer is a great addition or replacement at any business. We really like that POS-X offers 2-day replacement on warranty issues standard, giving you a lot less downtime if something were to happen to the printer.
